Origami Diagrams
I thought of sharing some of the diagrams I have been collecting over the last few months from various websites. These are available freely over the Internet and are mostly in the PDF format. I still haven’t gotten around to folding most of these as yet. For some of these models, I have found instructional videos on YouTube; and have provided links to view these PDF files as well as instructional videos accordingly. For more videos, please check out the category Instructional Videos on this site.

Origami The folding of an Origami crane Origami (折り紙?, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" (kami changes to gami due to rendaku) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami. The principles of origami are also being used in stents, packaging and other engineering structures.[1] History There is much speculation about the origin of Origami. In China, traditional funerals include burning folded paper, most often representations of gold nuggets (yuanbao). The earliest evidence of paperfolding in Europe is a picture of a small paper boat in Tractatus de sphaera mundi from 1490. Techniques and materials Origami Basic Folds Techniques

diagrammi Nel progettare questo modello ho pensato ai bambini, quindi a qualcosa di semplice da piegare e nello stesso tempo versatile. Inizialmente, ho realizzato queste due composizioni, e per questo l’ho chiamato Bialbero di Natale. Poi mi sono reso conto che i moduli possono essere assemblati alternando dimensioni diverse e anche colori diversi, avrei dovuto chiamarlo Multialbero di Natale. Sono molto contento di questo modello, che unisce semplicità, armonia, e versatilità, è come un gioco che può essere smontato e rimontato in modo personale. Ciascuna composizione è ottenuta da 6 ottagoni di carta per fotocopie, ricavati da sei quadrati coi lati di 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 e 21 cm, dall'alto verso il basso. Eccellente presentazione e sequenza fotografica di Maria Sinayskaya: goorigami.com Diagrammi per piegare i moduli del Bialbero di Natale Da dicembre 2012 è disponibile un bel video di di Mariela Recinos: Bialbero di Natale, composizione con otto moduli

At age 62, albatross hatches a chick By Paul Rogers progers@mercurynews.com Posted: 02/07/2013 09:19:19 AM PST0 Comments|Updated: about a year ago November 2012: Wisdom (left) and her mate at the containing the couple's egg. SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT (publ. 2/8/2013, page A2) An earlier version of a about a 62-year-old albatross that hatched a chick incorrectly reported that Midway Atoll is northeast of Hawaii. The world's oldest-known wild bird -- a 62-year-old albatross on Midway Atoll in the Pacific Ocean -- is also a new mother. The bird, a Laysan albatross whom biologists have named Wisdom, hatched a chick this week, her sixth in the past six years. "If she were human, she would be eligible for Medicare in a couple of years, yet she is still regularly raising young and annually circumnavigating the Pacific Ocean," said Bruce Peterjohn, chief of the North American bird banding program at the U.S. The chick, which scientists describe as healthy, hatched Sunday. Albatrosses lay only one egg a year.
